Seller has listed a large number of very obvious fake flash drives on ebay including this “New Sony USB 2.0 640GB Flash Memory Drive” and 500GB Sony flash drives – there is no such thing as either a 640GB USB flash drive or a 500GB USB flash drive – they are fake USB flashdrives and they will corrupt files.

There are plenty of fake flash drives of this type in any old fantastic fake capacity you care to imagine as this picture taken in a shop in Singapore demonstrates:

A cabinet full of obvious fake flash drives – and above these, fake capacity MP3/MP4 players – openly being sold in a shop. This is common in China – the home of fake flash memory.

As this seller obviously bought from one of the fraudulent suppliers in China all flash memory items from this seller will be fakes and anyone buying a USB flash drive from newworldent will find it corrupts their files.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
